The Manzanita Wilderness Photography online gallery contains approximately two thousand
images from more than one hundred wilderness locations
on five continents. Our goal is to spread
"wilderness consciousness" beyond the physical boundaries of the wilderness areas.
Allow us to take you to some of the most beautiful wilderness locations on the planet:
Antarctica is the largest wilderness area in the world. The stark beauty of the Antarctic
landscape is a mind altering experience. Since the animals of Antarctica rarely see humans, they
are not afraid of us. The combination of the stark wilderness and easy access to the animals
made this a once in a life time experience.
Pantanal National Park is the largest wet land on the Earth. The open savannah allows for
easy access to the wonderous arrary of animals in their natural state. Our trip took place
in September which is the end of the dry season. At the end of the dry season the wet lands
have shrunk, and the animals are concentrated around what water remains. We flew to Cuiaba,
and rented a car. Access to a car allowed us the freedom to explore the Trans Pantanal
Highway. The weather was exceedingly hot, but the photographic rewards were spectacular.
Fall Foliage in Hokkaido is easily as impressive as New England in the fall, but with
Hokkaido you also get volcanoes, pristine lakes, and the famous Japanese hot baths.
We toured four national parks in three weeks, and were fortunate enough to see the red crested
cranes at Kushiro Marsh.
Monte Maurice and Monte Perdido are spectacular national parks in the Spanish Pyrenees.
We flew to Barcelona, and drove to the Pyrenees for two weeks of great hiking. Sierra Nevada
National Park ouside of Granada contains the highest mountain in Spain.
The list below contains wilderness studies from more than eighty wilderness locations in eleven states.
The majority of the work is from my home state of California.
